A special Thanks to Lik-Sang for providing the GP32 for this review. They are very fast and friendly.

I received the test unit in 3 days via UPS. You can buy your own GP32 from their web site, http://www.lik-sang.com.

Layout


The GP32 layout is like a cross between an original GBA and a Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC), taking the L and R buttons from the GBA and the control stick from the NGPC. The Control Stick is very sensitive, the slightest movement it registered. I found that I adjusted it sensitivity after playing for a few minutes. The opposite is true for the L and R buttons, they are very stiff. I like this since I found myself accidentally pressing the L and R on the GBA.

The GP32 does not have a cartridge slot; instead it has a Smart Media slot (such as in digital cameras), and can support up to a 128MB card. This allows you to easily load your games on to the GP32 from your PC via the included USB cable ( software has to be downloaded from gp32 web site - http://english.gamepark.com /). The GP32 also has a built in MP3 player that works great – but I won’t go into detail since this article is about games.
